Hi I'm Elora Murray and welcome to the Phlebotomy Training News Network. Potential phlebotomy students often wonder what to expect in phlebotomy training. Well today we are highlighting some things a student can expect to learn in phlebotomy classes. Phlebotomy training programs can be completed in as little as three weeks. These classes include a mix of lectures and handson experience. To add, phlebotomy students perform over 50 venipuncture's while training. Students and instructors often have their blood drawn by other students as part of their training. Not only that but students are also trained.
In the use of microscrope's and centrifuges, as well as safety precautions. Also, students are educated on laboratory processes, therapeutic drug monitoring and other potential career applications for phlebotomy. Certification exams are provided by the ASCP, NHA and other organizations. In California, potential phlebotomists must also complete a 40 hour externship. Hopefully now you better understand what to expect in Phlebotomy training. For the Phlebotomy Training News Network. I'm Elora Murray. Thanks for joining us.

Donation processes. So, here she is sitting in our chair. I'm going to lift your chair up, so you're in the donation position. Ready? Ok. I'm Geoff. I'm going to be drawing your blood today. Have you ever donated before? Yes, ok. And, which arm do you like to donate from? So, I asked her had she done this before and which arm she wants to donate with. Usually, people who have done it before know which arm works for them. So, there's two things I'm going to give her now. This thing to squeeze and then we're going to wrap this blood pressure cup around her arm. We use these as tourniquets, so not actually going to take your blood pressure. It's just going to put pressure against your arm. It's going to make your vein come up.
So, what I'm going to do is inflate this cup to about sixty. And, I'm going to have her start squeezing against it. This is going to bring her veins to the surface. And, make them bold so they're easier to find. I'm going to put this under your arm. So, right now. Hold your squeeze. I've found suitable veins. This is called palpating. I want to find the direction that the vein is going, how large it is and see if it's going to move around. Some veins are not anchored down by muscle and tend to move. I've selected the vein I want to use. And, so I'm going to use this aluminum sealing clip to mark it. I'm going to lower the pressure. You can go ahead and relax your grip. The veins going to go down.
